Mills & Reeve enjoys another stellar performance in Legal 500

We are delighted to have once again performed well in the latest edition of The Legal 500 UK.

A record 15 of our lawyers are now listed in the Legal 500 “Hall of Fame” – the top accolade available to lawyers in the guide. Meanwhile another all-time high, 85 lawyers are mentioned in the elite "leading lawyers" list. New entries this year include partners Deborah Clark, Niall Innes and Carol Couse in Manchester and partners Kevin Lowe, Nick Abbott and Jill Mason in Birmingham.

Partner Andrew Secker and prinicpal associate Matthew Short both joined the ranks of “next generation partners”, classified by the Legal 500 as junior, new or younger partners who make a material difference to their practice. Finally principal associates Elizabeth Field, David Siddall, Katharine Robinson, Laura LudlowHannah Cheminais and Rachael Somerset, plus senior associate Alexandra Clark, were all added to the “rising star” category.

In total we have 41 top-tier rankings across our seven offices with one new entry this year – professional negligence in the North West. A further 56 practice areas are listed with two new entries in Yorkshire – employment and charities.

Claire Clarke, Mills & Reeve managing partner, who herself was named in the "Hall of Fame", commented: "We know that clients regularly look to legal directories such as Legal 500 to validate their lawyers so it is pleasing to see such superb recognition across the board this year."
